could make a huge difference in medication costs under president barack obamas health-care law. to keep premiums low, some states are allowed insurers to charge patients a large share of the calls for expensive medications for cancer and other serious condition. in california, the patient share would be up to 30% for the specialty drugs, which costs thousands of dollars a month. some states like new york are setting flat company payments for all medications with a high as $70. critics fear most is will follow california's lead. >> a partisan central mexico are setting up shelters as they prepare for possible corruption of the volcano near mexico city. officials close off a seven square mile zone around the volcano. soldiers and federal police have also been deployed to the area. activity increased over the weekend at the 17,000 ft. volcano. it's a saturday night, sometimes doing blowing rock over the crater. >> we will be right back. medications? i don't know. last immunization shots? really? honey, what's my blood pressure medicine called? one time i took something and i blew up like a

moments ago, house republicans voted to repeal president obama's health care law for the 37th time. they tried and failed to roll back this same law again and again and again. you would think that would deal with reality by now. they've done it so many times, it's starting to get well, strange. >> we see it coming like the iceberg, only it's not just in a mist. shortly in front of our eyes, we have time to turn. and that's why we are here. >> it's mestasticizing and must be completely repealed. >> wait a minute. i'm confused. is obama care a ship? is it a train or is it a tumor? these republicans it will help 30 million people. these republicans are laughable. but one thing that is not funny is how much time and money they've wasted. the gop has spent over 80 hours, two full work weeks trying to repeal the health care law and it's cost the american taxpayer $55 million. they won't spend money to feed the poor. last night a republican-led house panel voted to cut food stamps by more than $20 billion over ten years for low-income americans. flares a lot of talk about scandals in wash
: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, today we're having a vigorous debate about president obama's health care bill. and the reason why we're doing this is that there have been seven or eight different provisions already that have been repealed from this bill in the last two years because either it was fraud, it was onerous or it would not work. the reason why we are on the floor today is not to waste time , but to give themele through r government an opportunity to say we now know more about that bill that was not read. and here's what we know. we know that it is a $1 trillion-plus spending bill. $1 trillion that would have been in americans' pockets to make their own decisions about their health care. but now it is flowing to the federal government and what it is doing is arbitrarily causing our country -- and this is based upon the laws that are already in place in this country -- of what will happen to the debt of our country. president obama and democrats have led us to trillion-dollar deficits every single year the president has been in office. and this is just the beginning. and at

to move the obama forward with health care implementation and they are trying to do so. the irs is at the forefront of that. if the irs needs more federal funding in order to do that, in this environment i think good luck. there's not a politician in their right mind who is75h?da/ o defend the irs forcefully on a good day. i don't think there are too many good days in the near future for the irs. >> let me ask you about benghazi and i'm going to talk to common peter king about this as well. nancy pelosi has been a staunch supporter of this administration. she seems to say we shouldn't, as she said, soak up all of congressional attention on this. when you hear a mom like that, who doesn't have her mom on mother's day, and you also hear hillary rodham clinton saying, enough already, what's the impact of that on this white house? they also have obama care being implemented with complications. how do they address this benghazi issue? >> i think it's tremendously impactful. what we've seen on benghazi, certainly on capitol hill, is what we've seen on a lot of these polarizing things
that it would strengthen medicare. r. rothfus: three years later, president obama's health care law has proven to be a string of broken promises. we are seeing premiums rise. one business in my district expects a 26% increase in its premiums totaling more than $30,000. that's $30,000 that cannot go to increasing wages for workers. another company in my district with 17 employees expects a 19% premium increase. with an annual cost of more than $20,000. companies are being forced to change their health plans and pay more for them. some companies may even drop their plans and put their employees in the obamacare exchanges. that's a broken promise. obamacare is raising taxes on the middle class. the supreme court made that clear. one little known tax in obamacare is a medical device tax. this is a tax on the middle class, because it will be passed directly to the consumers. pennsylvania has the fourth largest medical device industry in the nation. the medical device tax threatens innovators like a company in my district, that supports 600 good paying jobs. obamacare does not strengthen medicare. c

care. we said the president's health care law. because our attorneys said that if we used obama, the name obama, that would cause problems for our pending status. >> joy reid, thank you for joining us tonight. my concern, i've voiced to loudly, this is catnip for the hard right. it says the government's the enemy. the government's out to get you. the helicopters are next. we're going to come get your guns. confiscate what you have and perhaps take you away to a concentration camp. it's not just paranoia if you have this kind of evidence. i think it is paranoia most of the time. if this thing gets out to be fact, if it's clear they were going through returns like this young lady, this lady's returns, her organization's returns, if they're going around systemically looking for the right wing, it could be the left wing next year. that's my view. i think the president was right. i think he should have been tougher. >> well, chris, you know, there's a couple things here just to impact. first of all, obviously the people in that cincinnati office -- we're not talking about people in w

removed from the bill before final passage. so how much do you think the politics around health care and around obama care impact the ultimate decision. >> i think the justices are very aware of what was going on. after the health care decision, i spoke with one who said he really didn't know why but he really felt the outside political pressure more than he had in other cases. not that it affected his decision but it was really hyped. that's really the hardest question to ask, when is the court doing politics. when is the court doing law. >> what i try to say to people in the book. each justice is the sum total of his or her life experiences in life and the law. and they bring those experiences to bear on the cases before them. the results are what the resultsful are i think we would be naive to believe they don't have certain ideological inclintonations. what also makes this time very interesting to watch this, i point out, for the first time in decades, we have five justices pointed by republican presidents and four by democratic presidents. >> and i want to get you to compare thi
